it just astounds me how many people have an irrational hatred for the "LFD" tool, as if it is somehow making them antisocial. dont blame the LFD because some people dont want to talk, i have been in premade groups that where silent and i have been in LFD groups that we chatted like crazy. its all about the people not the tools, and no people where not "more friendly" back then thats called nostalgia glasses
My concern with the addition of this system is the inherent adaptability of players in modern times. I would hate for something like IO Raid Scores to become a thing in TBC just because this type of system agrees. Granted there is no higher difficulties past Heroic mode, but nevertheless this may pave the way to a no-tolerance community where, if you don't have the desired IO, you're not getting invited.
Yeah as long as it's not cross-realm or porting people to the instance I am perfectly fine with this.My main issue with the dungeon finder had always been no longer choosing your groups and even worse the random dungeons to get bonus rewards just to get people to queue up for random dungeons.Just having it so that I can post that I am looking for the dungeon once and I can go about playing the game until someone messages me and not having to remember to spam a message in trade or LFG chat every few minutes is great.
*Yawn. Wake me up when Wotlk Classic is out.
Instant port to a dungeon is not a good idea and ruins TBC
LFG Tool and Dual spec are points that let me wait till WotLK Classic :)
What's funny is that the "I'm a group leader looking to invite people" portion of the UI is basically identical, just some new artwork.The "I'm trying to get invited to a group" portion though, that's much improved in retail, seeing a list of groups that are currently forming is far preferable to signing up for 3 of the 8 available dungeons and hoping somebody is forming a group for those and using the LFG tool.Bonus if they just use the retail LFG tool as-is, including the APIs that let add-ons like Premade Groups Filter work (so I can filter out groups that already have 3 dps or require a higher ilvl than what I have).
Sound good, keep the core and inprove the UI.
